The Holy City  Misc. Gospel

[C]Last night I lay a-[G]sleeping
There [G7]came a dream so fair
I stood in old Jeru[F]salem
[D7]Beside the temple [G7]there
I [C]heard the children [G]singing
And [G7]ever as they [C]sang
[Gdim7]Methought the voice of [G]angels
From [D7]heaven in answer [G]rang
[D7]Methought the voice of [G]ang[Em]els
From [G]heaven in [D7]answer [G]ran[F]g [C]  [G7]

Chorus
[C]Jerusalem, Jerusalem
[F]Lift up your voice and [C]sing
[G]Hosanna in the [Em]high[Am]est
[C]Hosanna [G7]to your [C]King

And then methought my dream was changed
The streets no longer rang
Hushed were the glad hosannas
The little children sang
The sun grew dark with mystery
The morn was cold and chill
As the shadow of a cross arose
Upon a lonely hill
As the shadow of a cross arose
Upon a lonely hill

And [E]once again the [F#]scene was changed
New [A]earth there seemed to [E]be
I [C#m]saw the [C7]Holy [Em]City [E]be[B7]side the tideless [E]sea
The [C#m]light of God was [G#m]on its streets
The [G]gates were open [D]wide
And [G]all who would might [C]enter in
[F]And [G]no one [G7]was [C]denied
[E7]No [Am]need of [E7]moon, of [Am]stars by night
Or [F]sun to [Dm]shine by [C]day
[Gdim7]It was the [G/D]New Jerusalem
That [D]would not pass [G]away [D]
[G]It was the [D7]New Jeru[G]sal[Em]em
That [G]would not [D7]pass [G]away

Last chorus:
Jerusalem, Jerusalem
Sing for the night is o’er
Hosanna in the highest
Hosanna forevermore
Hosanna in the highest
Hosanna forevermore
